Protecting Yourself from Spam Mail

Anyone with an email account gets some sort of spam in their inbox. Spam is defined as online solicitation that is both unsolicited and of a bulk nature. Most often, if you have one or more online email accounts; it is just a given that you will be privy to some amount of unsolicited email-something we all accept. While we do accept it, doesn?t mean we have to accept it; since spam email can; not only, be dangerous as some emails have viruses; but it can also be very annoying, depending on the particular volume and nature of spam that you receive. This is why we have created this section on protecting yourself from spam mail, to help you find your own solution to unsolicited emails-in whatever form or shape that might take. In this category, we discuss everything from tips on fighting spam and spammers to controlling spam amounts and nature, and using email encoding tools.

The basic route of conduct for any successful spammer is to, not just purchase mailing list names and contact information, but also guess at what your email address might be. A good example of this would be considering a very popular email provider, such as Hotmail, which hosts millions of accounts, with many ending in hotmail.com. Next, a spammer-to piece together a viable email address-will use a bunch of letters and/or numbers and add it to the "hotmail.com?. While this may seem random, and probably therefore, not very successful-it actually works much much more than you would think. This is for two reasons: first, consider just how many people have hotmail primary or secondary email accounts; and second, consider how many emails these parties are sending out at a time. The likelihood within millions of bulk emails that they will connect with a lot of addresses is good-especially when you consider that no two people can have the same email address at an email provider. In this section on email encoding tools, we discuss the definition and nature of ways people encode or disguise their email addresses, so that it makes it a lot harder for solicitors to identify them.

Closely tied to the topic of stopping spammers as it relates to the unsolicited emails in your email accounts, is controlling spam. As noted previously, unfortunately, at this time, there is no surefire way to stop all unsolicited, bulk email from entering your work and personal email accounts; but, that is not to say that you can?t make the situation much better for yourself through the avid control of what comes into your inbox. In this category, how to control spam, we take a closer investigation of the most effective and popular ways that people are controlling what kind of emails are coming into their lives.

Let?s face it..If you?re online and have any kind of email contact presence?you get spam email. Though we all vary on how much or what kinds we get, it is a burden we must bear in return for instant and worldwide communication-or do we? Very few of us understand that are ways in which to stop spam by happening. Perhaps we cannot put an end to all unsolicited emails forever after, but there are things you can do to limit the amount of these emails you may be receiving. One of the most significant ways in which to address this is through going to the source of the emails: the spammer. In this section, we take a closer look at how you can identify and restrict spammers, to unburden your inbox.

Lastly, while there are common means that most anyone who has an email address uses to try to cut down on the amount of unsolicited, bulk email; there are more effective ways to help in this regard that perhaps, you are unaware of. This category takes a closer look at the less known tips on fighting unsolicited emails.
